In an effort to create an ending for the series despite the same time frame in the manga being only the beginning of what is yet to come, Sasahara’s job search was expanded on in previous episodes as well as this one. It’s a painful journey and one I can relate to.
Sasahara, after a hard fight and a reality check from Genshiken members past and present, manages to get a job as an editor, and he talks to Ogiue on the phone. How does Ogiue feel about it?
Wait what was I talking about again?
Oh right, the best Christmas present possible. Thanks, ARMS!
